On This day, December 10, 1901 The First Nobel Prizes Were Awarded In Sweden

On this day in 1901, the first Nobel Prizes were awarded in Stockholm, Sweden, in the fields of physics, chemistry, medicine, literature, and peace. The ceremony came on the fifth anniversary of the death of Alfred
Nobel, the Swedish inventor of dynamite and other high explosives.

Alfred Nobel's interest in science, culture and society is evident in his will. Nobel wrote several wills during his lifetime. He composed the last over a year before he died. In the third and last will that he signed in Paris on 27 November 1895, he declared that the major portion of his fortune should go toward prizes in physics, chemistry, physiology or medicine, literature and peace.

Not everybody was pleased with this - it took four years for the executors to convince all parties to follow Alfred Nobel's wishes. On 10 December 1901 the first Nobel Prizes were awarded.
The Nobel Prize in Literature 1986 was awarded to Nigerian born, Wole Soyinka.
